i've been on an anime spree. And i just finished Blood+, Darker than Black, Guin Saga, Eden of the East, Sekirei, D. gray Man and full metal panic! (for the second time.) I watched Claymore again, then i read all the way up to the current chapter in the manga! I FUCKING LOVE CLAYMORE lol. and got up fairy tail episode 82. And just got caught up to the newest episode of Another. =p
Hey' just wanted to let you know dirctly, i agree with you for the most part and i ain't a sexist pig. if you want an example, Holo (or Horo) from Spice and Wolf is way better then Lawerence, if you've seen that anime.
